NINDS invites applications for countermeasures against chemical threats (CounterACT) cooperative research projects.  This announcement is made together with 6 other NIH components.

Chemical threats are toxic chemicals that could be used in a terrorist attack or accidentally released from industrial production, storage, or shipping.  They include traditional chemical warfare nerve agents such as sarin and VX, and toxic industrial chemicals and pesticides such as cyanide, chlorine, parathion, and sodium fluoroacetate.  The mission of the CounterACT program is to develop new and improved therapeutics for chemical threats.
